A big thank you to everyone who supported this day
it was a great success and raised appx. £1465.
I shall be making the following payments over the
next few days.
Graham Nabb for money owed for repairs
Coventry Guild of Bellringers CCT Maintenance fund £665
Coventry Guild of Bellringers Bell
restoration Fund £250
Churches Conservation Trust
There may be a little extra to pass on over
the next few days..
In addition all profits from the food at Avon
Dassett ( and wasn't it good!!) will go to the Churches Conservation Trust who
have spent a huge amount of money restoring the building.
I am sorry there was a little wheel
slippage ( fortunately it only affected only 6 of the 28 or more bands
that rang) - I have a bit of tinkering to do to correct that - but it was only
the second time they have been rung after all the work.
Ettington ringing raised £205 which will go a long
way to clear the shortfall on the cost of repair work there.
Can I publicly thank the stewards without who's
support they day could not happen and of course all those who allowed their
bells to be available for this event.
Stars of the day were Harvey Innocent (Offchurch)
and Becky Hawkins (Kineton), part of the Kids in Charge group, who notched
up a tower total of 21 during the day which must have quadrupled their previous
tower total. And they still had energy and enthusiasm at the last tower!
Perhaps their driver Hazel Taylor should get the prize!
It was also good to see John Allen from Lichfield
at Avon Dassett finally ringing on the bells he tried to remove 30 years
